Martin Buttrich, a name synonymous for decades with expertly curated sonic productions, has had a career as long as it has been prolific. From youthful productions as an 18 year old under the alias ‘X-Rotation’, to his 2010 debut album ‘Crash Test’ and its follow-up ‘Collaborator, Vol. 1’ in 2016, he is an artist who has constantly evolved. Now he’s back to showcase his latest EP ‘Northeast / Southwest” on Planet E, due for release on 1 February.
“It’s been 11 years since my last full release on Planet E and I am so happy to be able to kick off 2019 in style and return to my spiritual home. I spent the last few months working on these tracks at my studio in Barcelona and am looking forward to sharing them with you”.– Martin Buttrich
The opening track ‘Northeast’ sees punchy stabs interlace with a shifting melodic bass, both dancing playfully over and under shuffling snares and hats which carry the listener from start to finish. ‘Southwest’ continues on with a bouncing percussive groove that provides the platform for a canorous bassline and string melody to emerge.
